This Green Bean Casserole is a healthier, dairy-free version, and as creamy and comforting as the original. I love serving this ultimate comforting dish during Thanksgiving, Christmas and for winter gatherings.
Sauteing the garlic and onions alone creates a pleasant aroma of warmth in your home, and makes you feel just so cozy! You'll definately want to add this green bean casserole vegan dish to your plant-based holiday menu!
This green bean vegan recipe uses hearty, meaty portobello mushrooms with beautiful earthy layers of flavor. Add a little cornstarch to turn it into a thicker sauce.
Once the string beans are steamed, we coat them with this delicious sauce, top them with lightly oiled panko breadcrumbs and sliced almonds. Also, instead of those fried onions they sell at the store, we use caramelized shallots for the ultimate, healthier crispy top of this easy vegan green bean casserole.
This is a great addition to your plant based Thanksgiving dinner. Head over to my recipe roundup for more Thanksgiving dishes: Plant-Based Dishes For Thanksgiving.
Serve this vegan green bean recipe hot so it's nice and bubbly. You have so many textures and layers of flavors. I love serving these with Mashed Cauliflower, Cranberry apple sauce, and some Roasted Butternut Squash.
I call this a delicious, warming meal that will nourish your body and soul, leaving you satisfied without the guilt or heaviness when finished with a comforting winter/holiday meal. Plant based soul food recipes like this vegan string bean recipe stick to your ribs, leaving you full and delightfully so.

Heart Healthy Green Bean Casserole
Green beans offer a whopping dose of vitamins like A, C, K, B6, and folic acid, a high dose of fiber, and minerals like calcium, silicon, iron, manganese, potassium, and copper.
Mushrooms are so great to add to your diet, as they are known to boost the immune system and ward your body from cancer and other diseases.
Garlic, shallots and thyme are immune boosters, offering antibacterial properties, which makes this dish so great for winter.
Top them with the crunchy almonds for some heart-healthy protein rich crunch. You have yourself a beautiful, health supporting, comforting dish that will please your entire family/dinner party.
